OBJECTIVES To determine whether children with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) have evidence of increased aortic stiffness or early atherosclerosis as measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). BACKGROUND T1DM increases risk for cardiovascular disease in adults but whether this process starts in childhood is unknown. SUBJECTS A total of 54 T1DM patients (15.4 ± 2.6 yr) and 30 age-matched controls (14.8 ± 2.7 yr) participated. METHODS MRI was performed to assess aortic arch pulse wave… CONTINUE READING
